CHESTERVILLE — Seventy-five vehicles — up substantially from last year’s 48 — hit the road in the Chesterville Lions Club’s annual Car Rally on Saturday.
Participants answered a sheet of questions as they made a four-hour trip that took them from Chesterville to Iroquois, Morrisburg and back again to the local Legion branch — where they perused the silent auction full of donated items and bought tickets on the Lions’ summer draw for a new barbecue unit. The rallygoers also made four poker stops along the 152 km journey.
“It’s the fourth time I’ve done it,” said a satisfied Tony Derks upon his return to Chesterville with his son, James, who rode shotgun.
The event was expected to raise about $2,000 for the Chesterville Lions Club.
Many of the participants also opted to have dinner at Legion Branch 434, where members prepared one of their first famous barbecue dinners of the 2018 season.
